VASSE FELIX FILIUS CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2015 14% 75CL
TASTING NOTES APPEARANCE Maroon with a purple tint. NOSE A classical savoury Cabernet perfume. Vibrant blackcurrant fruit with gravel earth, hints of venison, mushrooms and truffles mingle with a fine sage-like herbal lift. Fragrant spiced oak notes sit beautifully underneath, delivering a touch of classical cedar. PALATE A light entrance leads to juicy fruit with bright acidity, with flavours of blackcurrant and woodsy native forest. Shapely as a Cabernet should be, the power starts to build with a fine tannin profile, leaving a lengthy dry, linear finish.
WINEMAKER COMMENTS The structural elements of fine Margaret River Cabernet are embraced with a hint of the Malbec's dark fruit to make a classic Vasse Felix style Cabernet Sauvignon. All vineyard sections are fermented separately, accentuating the natural beauty of each parcel of fruit. After 12 months matured in barrique, the Cabernet was blended with the ideal percentage of Malbec to create a savoury fine wine with medium weight, where big is not considered the best.
VINTAGE DESCRIPTION Mild conditions in Margaret River with no extreme weather conditions, allowing for balanced fruit and a slow and steady intake. There was no disease pressure and fruit quality is excellent the only disappointment was yields being down across the Region for all key varieties. This was the outcome of storms in spring and pressure from an increase in the local population of Silver Eyes (birds) and no Marri Blossom.
This wine is suitable for Vegetarians
